I was in a meeting this morning and forget to copy a file from my Macbook Pro, which I left at home, to the Asus Eee PC that I was using. One of my professors-colleague joked about calling home and asking my youngest daughter, who is 3 years old, to send me the file. :) I thought that if only I had VPN setup at home, I could easily retrieve the file. Unfortunately, there is no Back-To-My-Mac available on Linux either.
Today, after getting home from that tiring meeting (spanned 10 hours!), I saw a tutorial on how to configure your SSH to make it function like you have a full VPN setup. Whilst it is a few hours late, I still find it ingenious. I will try it out and see how easy it works. This beats having a VPN-server on your broadband router!
Will you try it out, too? Let's see how easy it is to setup.
